Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED MY NISSAN FRONTIER FROM A NISSAN DEALER "AS IS" WHICH WAS FINE TIL THE FIRST TIME I FILLED IT UP. THE SMELL OF GAS MADE ME PULL OVER RIGHT AWAY. COULDN'T FIND OR SEE A LEAK BUT SURE COULD SMELL IT. SHORTLY AFTER CHECK ENGINE LIGHT GOES ON. HAD A MECHANIC LOOK AT IT TO FIND FUEL IS LEAKING FROM THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK. I SEE I'M NOT THE ONLY PERSON TO COMPLAIN ABOUT IT. HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL INVESTIGATE BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT. I'M ON S.S.D. I CAN NOT AFFORD THIS PROBLEM THAT SHOULD BE RECALLED. TRIED TO LOCATE A NEW TANK FOR THE TRUCK. CAN'T FIND ONE. I CAN'T SEE PUTTING A RECYCLED DEFECT IN. ANYONE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM NEEDS TO CALL THE NHTSA SO WE CAN GET THE RECALL STARTED. NOW NISSAN CHANGED THE TANK AND ADDED ACCESS PANEL BEHIND THE BACK SEAT ON NEWER MODELS. SO I DON'T FILL MY TRUCK AND IT STILL SMELLS OF GAS BUT NOT AS BAD. HOPEFULLY HELP IS AROUND THE CORNER. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR WOULDN'T START. BATTERY WAS FINE..PASSENGERS HAD RECENTLY SAID THAT THEY NOTICED A FUEL SMELL, BUT I CAN'T SMELL (A PHYSICAL HANDICAP OF MINE).; CALLED AAA- IT WAS THEN THAT WE NOTICED THAT FUEL WAS LEAKING OUT OF THE TOP OF THE GAS TANK, THE FUEL PUMP WIRE THAT SUPPLIES POWER TO THE FUEL PUMP WAS BROKEN. CAR HAD TO BE TOWED TO A LOCAL GARAGE. CALLED NISSAN DEALER AND HE SAID 'YOUR CAR IS OLD, JUST REPLACE THE FUEL TANK. BUT, THE DESIGN OF THE GAS TANK IS SUCH THAT THERE IS A 'GULLY' WHERE WATER GETS TRAPPED ON THE DESIGN OF THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK. NISSAN REFUSES TO ADMIT THAT THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW THAT IS CAUSING THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANKS TO CORRODE; AND THIS IS INDEED A SAFETY ISSUE! AS A MECHANICAL ENGINEER WHO SPECIALIZES IN METALS, IT IS DEFINITELY A POOR DESIGN; I HAVE OWNED AND WORKED ON CARS MY ENTIRE LIFE, AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A FUEL TANK CORRODE THROUGH. ALL OF THE LOCAL MECHANICS/GARAGES IN MY AREA TELL ME "THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM IN NISSAN FRONTIERS- WE FIX THEM ALL OF THE TIME." *TR

Summary of Complaint

ENGINE STOPPED WHILE ON HIGHWAY. UNABLE TO RESTART. ON CHECKING VEHICLE, DISCOVERED WATER IN FUEL TANK. AFTER REMOVING FUEL TANK FROM VEHICLE, NOTICED, ACCESS TO FUEL TANK FROM TOP SEVERELY CORRODED. THE FUEL TANK IS LOCATED DIRECTLY BELOW SPACE BETWEEN CAB OF TRUCK AND BED. THIS ALLOWS WATER TO ENTER THROUGH THE SPACE. THE ACCESS TO THE TANK HAS A RAISED RING AND A GROOVE THAT RUNS AROUND THE RING, WHICH ALLOWS WATER TO COLLECT. THE WHOLE RING IS CORRODED AND THEIR IS HOLES IN THE TOP OF THE TANK. I FEEL THIS IS A POORLY DESIGNED TANK AND POOR LOCATION OF TANK. MY SON AND MY FRIEND HAS THE SAME MAKE AND MODEL AND THE BOTH EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM. MY SON JUNKED HIS TRUCK AND MY FRIEND USED J-WELD TO MAKE MAKESHIFT REPAIRS. I LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WITH A POPULATION OF 2000 RESIDENCE, WHICH MAKES ME BELIEVE THAT THIS CANNOT BE A ISOLATED INCIDENT.

Summary of Complaint

1. MY 2001 NISSAN FRONTIER SE'S ENGINE SUDDENLY DIED WITH NO WARNING. IT WOULD NOT START AND I VERIFIED THAT THERE WAS IN FACT GAS IN THE TANK. I EXPECTED IT TO BE THE FUEL PUMP THAT FAILED. I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED AT MY EXPENSE TO A GARAGE OF MY CHOICE. 2. I DECIDED TO CHECK ONLINE TO SEE WHAT RECALLS MIGHT BE DUE ON THE VEHICLE. THERE WERE A FEW RECALLS, BUT RECALL ID # 5971 WHICH IS A RECALL OF THE FUEL SENDING UNIT WAS THE ONE THAT SEEMED TO BE AN EXACT DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM THAT I HAD(ENGINE CAN STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING RESULTING IN A CRASH). I CALLED THE NISSAN'S HEAD OFFICE TO SEE IF THE RECALL HAD BEEN COMPLETED AND WAS TOLD THAT THERE WERE NO OPEN RECALLS ON MY VEHICLE AND THAT ALL RECALLS ON MY VIN # HAD BEEN TAKEN CARE OF. SO KNOWING THIS I BELIEVED THAT THE SENDING UNIT WAS NOT THE PROBLEM. 3. MY MECHANIC REMOVED AND REPLACED THE FUEL PUMP AND THE VEHICLE STILL WOULD NOT RUN. I MENTIONED THE RECALL TO HIM AND HE THEN CAREFULLY CHECKED THE SENDING UNIT FOR CORROSION AND DISCOVERED THAT THERE WAS AN ELECTRICAL SHORT ON THE ONE CONNECTORS ON TOP OF THE UNIT THAT HE FOUND DUE TO THE PLASTIC ON UNDER THE CONNECTOR BEING CRACKED. THIS WAS DEFINITELY THE PROBLEM, AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE SENDING UNIT LOOKED TO BE THE ORIGINAL. THE MECHANIC THEN PURCHASED AN OEM FUEL SENDING UNIT FROM NISSAN AND MY TRUCK WAS FIXED. THE ISSUE WITH THIS IS THAT THE PART NUMBER ON THE NEW PUMP THAT WAS PUT INTO MY VEHICLE IS THE SAME EXACT NUMBER AS THE ONE THAT WAS ORIGINALLY INSTALLED IN THE VEHICLE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE BECAUSE THE COMPANY PUT A NEW SENDING UNIT INTO THE VEHICLE TO COMPLY WITH A RECALL KNOWING THAT THE SAME EXISTING PROBLEM WOULD RETURN. I FEEL LIKE I AM DRIVING A TICKING TIME BOMB! IT WAS NOT FUN HAVING MY VEHICLE DIE ON THE HIGHWAY WITHOUT WARNING AND IT IS VERY UNSAFE. I ENDED UP SPENDING $486.97 OUT OF MY OWN POCKET TO FIX THE SAME PART THAT WAS RECALLED ONLY TO HAVE ANOTHER PART WITH THE SAME PART NUMBER AND FUTURE PROBLEM. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY 2001 NISSAN FRONTIER HAS HAD FIVE RECALLS. THE RECALL THAT I AM UNSATISFIED WITH IS RELATED TO THE FUEL SYSTEM: THE NOV. 2002 RECALL OF THE FUEL STORAGE TANK AND THE MAY 2004 RECALL OF THE FUEL PUMP. THESE REPAIRS ARE PENDING AND HAVE BEEN SINCE JUNE 30, 2008. THE FUEL TANK IS UNAVAILABLE AND HAS BEEN FOR 108 DAYS, AS OF TODAY OCT. 15. IT HAS BEEN INOPERABLE AND HAS BEEN AT THE DEALER SINCE JUNE 30. ORIGINAL ISSUE BEGAN ON JUNE 13, 2008. THE VEHICLE STRUGGLED TO TURN OVER, EMITTED HEAVY DARK EXHAUST, THE SMELL OF GASOLINE WAS PRESENT, THE SERVICE-ENGINE LIGHT WENT ON AND I EXPERIENCED A LOSS OF POWER WHILE GETTING IT TO THE FITZGERALD AUTO MALL DEALER IN CHAMBERSBURG PA. THE REQUIRED WORK WAS COMPLETED ON JUNE 18. THE REPAIR WORK INCLUDED REPLACING THE KNOCK SENSOR (CODE P0325) AND RELATED GASKETS, REPLACING THE VENT CONTROL VALVE AND CHARCOAL CANISTER (CODE P1441). THERE WAS NO MENTION OF ANY RECALL WORK REGARDING THE FUEL SYSTEM. I DROVE THE TRUCK FOR SIX DAYS. ON JUNE 29 THE EXACT SAME SYMPTOMS APPEARED. I GOT THE TRUCK HOME (BARELY) AND CALLED THE SERVICE MANAGER. ON JUNE 30, THE DIAGNOSIS CAME BACK. SAME PROBLEM, DIFFERENT DIAGNOSIS. THE CODES WERE PULLED AND P1441 CAME UP AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME THE REQUIRED PART TO REPAIR THE VEHICLE IS A NEW FUEL STORAGE TANK-- A PART THAT WAS RECALLED. MY REPAIRS IN JUNE WERE IN EXCESS OF $1200. I ALSO NEEDED A LOANER VEHICLE AT $35 A DAY . I AM OUT $$1,636.42 AND HAVE MADE 7 BI-WEEKLY CAR PAYMENTS AT $144 FOR A TRUCK I CAN'T DRIVE. THE REGIONAL SPECIALIST FOR NISSAN HAS PROMISED TO TAKE CARE OF THE PAYMENT AND REIMBURSEMENT FOR THE REPAIRS, BUT HAS NOT DELIVERED YET. NISSAN WON'T REIMBURSE UNTIL THE PART IS IN THE VEHICLE. MY CASE NUMBER WITH NISSAN IS 6262993. THE PART IS "DUE" AT THE DEALER THE LAST WEEK OF OCTOBER, HOWEVER A RECALL REPAIR SHOULD NOT TAKE 4 MONTHS. MY COMPLAINT IS NOT WITH THE CHAMBERSBURG DEALER BUT WITH NISSAN NORTH AMERICA. *TR

NISSAN HAS NOT RELEASED THESE PARTS FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC. MECHANIC STILL TRYING TO GET RESPONSE FROM NISSAN. NISSAN WILL NOT RECALL. THIS HAPPENS ALMOST EVERYDAY WE DRIVE THIS CAR. CAN'T AFFORD ANOTHER CAR, WILL HAVE TO FIND AWAY TO FIX, BUT NISSAN IS NOT CORPORATION. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THERE HAS BEEN AN ISSUE WITH MY 2001 NISSAN FRONTIER SINCE IT HAD 15,000 MILES ON IT. I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE NEW. THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT HAS BEEN ON MORE THAN IT HAS BEEN OFF, AND I HAVE SMELLED RAW GAS SMELL WHICH HAS CONTINUED TO GET WORSE. DEALERSHIPS HAVE CONTINUALLY TOLD MY WIFE AND MYSELF THAT THE GAS CAP WAS LOOSE, OR WE NEEDED A NEW GAS CAP AND RESET THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT. IT DIDN'T TAKE VERY LONG BEFORE THE LIGHT WENT BACK ON AGAIN. IT TURNS OUT THERE IS A HOLE IN THE GAS TANK, NOT DUE TO SOMETHING HITTING THE TANK BUT THEY ARE SAYING THIS IS DUE TO CORROSION. I THINK IT HAS BEEN THERE THE ENTIRE TIME I HAVE OWNED THE TRUCK. THE TRUCK ONLY HAS 85,000 MILES AND LOOKS LIKE BRAND NEW, IT HAS BEEN STORED INSIDE SINCE I HAVE OWNED IT. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER. I HAVE READ ON THE INTERNET OTHER STORIES OF SIMILAR ISSUES WITH 2000, 2001, AND 2002 NISSAN FRONTIER MODELS. I BELIEVE THERE IS A DEFECT IN THE GAS TANKS ON THOSE YEARS OF NISSAN FRONTIERS. I AM GOING TO HAVE THE GAS TANK FIXED, BUT I AM GOING TO REQUEST THE OLD ONE TO BE SAVED. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND NONE OF THE DEALERS WE TOOK THE TRUCK TO COULD FIND THE PROBLEM. MY GARAGE SMELLED LIKE A GAS STATION WHEN GETTING RE-FILLED BY A GAS TANKER. I AM SO SURPRISED THAT THE GARAGE/HOUSE DIDN'T EXPLODE. I HAVE REPORTED THIS TO THE CONSUMER DIVISION OF NISSAN AND THEY DO NOT SEEM TOO CONCERNED WITH THIS ISSUE. THEY WILL NOT EVEN CALL ALL OF THE DEALERSHIPS WHERE I HAVE REPORTED THIS AND ATTEMPTED TO HAVE THIS ISSUE WITH THE GAS TANK FIXED. I ALSO HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTATION ON THE SERVICE RECORDS FOR THIS ISSUE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY 2001 NISSAN PATHFINDER WAS PURCHASED 3 YEARS AGO. A BOSE 6-CD PLAYER CAME INSTALLED IN THE VEHICLE. THE 6-CD PLAYER STOPPED WORKING, AND DISPLAYS AN ERROR MESSAGE, "ERR 2". MY VEHICLE IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY. THIS PROBLEM WAS ADDRESSED WITH THE NISSAN DEALER (SERVICE DEPARTMENT) IN BUENA PARK CALIFORNIA ON DECEMBER 21, AT 6:40PM. I WAS INFORMED THAT I COULD PURCHASE A NEW CD PLAYER, HOWEVER THIS WOULD BE QUITE COSTLY. THE NISSAN DEALER FURTHER STATED, WHEN A CUSTOMER WHOSE VEHICLE IS UNDER WARRANTY HAS THIS SAME PROBLEM, THEY DO NOT REPAIR THE PROBLEM. THE CD PLAYER IS REPLACED WITH ANOTHER. NO REPAIR SHOP WILL LOOK AT MY SYSTEM. APPARENTLY, THIS PROBLEM IS COMMON WITH NISSANS. OTHER THAN PURCHASING A NEW CD PLAYER, THERE HAS TO BE SOME TYPE OF CONSUMER REPAIR SHOP. NISSAN SEEMS UNCONCERNED WITH THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM. *TR

POSTED THIS ISSUE ON A NISSAN FORUM AND FOUND IT TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM! I CALLED A FACTORY AND THEY SAID THE ONLY FIX WAS TO TAKE OUT LOCK CORE AND HAVE IT RE-KEYED. NOT A GOOD THING IF YOU ASK ME! *TR
